ASE2 CARD CATALOG ENTRY
This is an electronic reprint of the "Ada 95 Reference Manual: Language and Standard Libraries" with HTML annotations and a hypertext structure created by Magnus Kempe.
This hypertext document is a transmogrified version of the revised international standard (ISO/IEC 8652:1995): Information Technology -- Programming Languages -- Ada. The entry point is the table of contents (TOC), with three "zoom levels." All cross-references (to clauses, paragraphs, etc.) in the text and index have become links which will take you to the appropriate parts when followed.
The text of the reference manual is formatted and all paragraphs are numbered in order to reflect the structure of the paper version. The presentation will of course slightly differ from that of the paper version, first because some formatting information has been lost in the process of going from Scribe to ASCII to HTML, and second because your WWW browser provides you with a particular, possibly quite limited, view of this document. The package is subdivided into hypertext "pages," one page for each section, annex, clause, and subclause. This guarantees that when you access a new page you will not wait forever to download and display it. The index of the reference manual has been subdivided into sections by alphabetical order. All entries are links to the corresponding paragraphs of the document.
On all pages of this package (sections, annexes, clauses, and subclauses), you will find some links at the top and bottom. They provide a structure for systematic navigation in the reference manual.

"I grant permission to the PAL to distribute that file by FTP, and on the Walnut Creek CD-ROM copy of the PAL, without any modification. Permission must be requested first for any other kind of use or distribution. "I've applied a number of verification tools to ensure that the document is coherent and HTML-compliant. Many bugs have been removed and the presentation is much nicer I believe." -- Magnus Kempe, April 1997 This package may be freely copied and distributed, if accompanied by this statement, and provided that integral copies of all files are included (i.e. no change whatsoever is allowed). You are asked to help keep the hypertext annotations consistent, identical everywhere in the world. If you think something needs to be modified, tell the author what and why. Copies of the package are allowed but not recommended on other anonymous FTP sites. Copies are NOT allowed on government-subsidized FTP/WWW sites which require registration and accounts. This package is intended exclusively for local installation; individual files extracted from the package may NOT be exported outside of a site (e.g. company or university) with FTP/WWW servers other than the Home of the Brave Ada Programmers (HBAP). You may not sell these hypertext annotations but you may include and use them in an application. There are no royalties for such uses of the annotations; the author only asks that any documentation acknowledge that it includes or uses the hypertext annotations developed by him.
